Buckwheat flour is ground from Fagopyrum Esculentum, more commonly known as buckwheat. Although treated as a grain, buckwheat is not a cereal or grass, but it is actually a fruit that is closely related to wild rhubarb. To distinguish it from grains, it is sometimes called a pseudo cereal.
Wholegrain buckwheat flour is made by grinding unroasted buckwheat grains which are rich in micro and macro-elements such as: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium (maintains muscle health), iron, cobalt, copper and zinc. Products created from buckwheat flour additionally enrich our diet with B vitamins which help to keep the skin, hair and nails in perfect condition. It contains up to 10% fibre and it is also high in protein.
With so much to offer nutritionally, buckwheat is truly a health-promoting powerhouse.
